A little about Team Herronators
A big thank you to Rachel Walters for referring Michael to us! Rachel was Team Invisibles back in 2013. It's great to be able to continue our support of the Army National Guard.
Michael writes, "We are an Army National Guard unit out of Nebraska, the 195th Forward Support Company (Special Operations) (Airborne). We are a team of 10, broken out in 3 separate Middle East countries. Our primary mission is to logistically support operational forces. For 10 people, we do about the workload of 30, making for long days and nights sometimes."

Today, with nearly 60 teams behind us, we are pleased to announce that David's son, Marine CPL David E. Billa, will be one of our March recipients! Thank you, David, for nominating your son!
CPL Billa writes, "We are a part of Black Sea Rotational Force in aid to the Special Marine Air Ground Task Force. My Marines and I maintain and repair communication equipment in and around the area. Our battalion, America's Battalion, is spread throughout the European continent."

The Story Behind Cindy's Baking Angels....
Four years ago, following my retirement from middle school teaching, I set out to find an outreach program that would give me a sense of accomplishment.
A friend led me to Bakinggals.com, an organization which supports our deployed Troops. I became a team leader and now 4 years later with over 215 Angels in our network, "Goodie Boxes" are shipped monthly to our deployed Troops.
Our "Goodie Boxes" are as diversified as our Angels. Baked goods, comfort items our Troops need, plus some fun and creative items are sent lovingly each and every month.
We are always seeking Troop referrals and welcome Angels to our network. Scroll down and see how you can become an Angel or Refer a Troop for a future team!
Thank you for visiting and please share with friends and help our Mission to grow!
We are seeking two referrals for June! Refer your deployed Troops today!
Deadline for June referral information is May 10th!
For more information, see "Referrals" and nominate your Troop today!

Cindy's Baking Angels builds its Angel teams monthly, in affiliation with Bakinggals.com.
"Baking GALS (GALS stands for Give A Little Support) is a group of volunteer bakers from around the country who bake and ship homemade goodies to our heroic military men and women who are currently deployed in a war zone. Our goal is to show our support and send a little bit of home to remind them that we appreciate all that they do for our freedom." Bakinggals.com
Each month I sponsor a different Military recipient(s). Recipients are often referred to me by family members, friends, and by our military recipients themselves. Any deployed Military Troop is eligible. To refer a special Troop, please see Military Referrals for more information. Our services are free of charge to all Troops.
Once Cindy's Baking Angels selects a recipient(s), information is published on Bakinggals.com. Team sign-up can only be completed through Bakinggals.com and prospective members must be registered for their site.
Team building begins the 24th of the month and shipping is from the 1st - 13th of the next month. Team size is limited to 20 members. Baking is not a requirement. Often members send toiletries and other comfort items to help make our Soldiers' lives a little easier.
Once team sign-up is complete, I provide a detailed Team Newsletter with tips for shipping, baking, and other tricks I've learned that will be of help to newbies as well as veterans. I support my team unconditionally and any questions or comments are welcomed.
If you're seeking a communicative and supportive group, then Cindy's Baking Angels is the right match for you. Come and join us!
